    OH COCK!

    I have just gone to replace my breaks, first wheel off beauty, got to the hex bolts and gave it some welly and its just sheered in the caliper housing.

    Upset is an understatement.

    This is gonna get very expensive.

    A squirt would be an understatement, i had the wheels off the night before and drenched them, then the next morning then got round to it and did the superman twisting steel punched the floor.
